Submissions for Freebie Friday (Jul 29) #amwriting This'll be the last week of the @Smashwords promo!

Add your book to the comment thread here to get featured next week! Since it'll be the last week of the SW Summer/Winter Sale site-wide promo, this is the last week I'll be carrying forward all of those books that were participating.

To get in on this, all you need is to have an English-language book that is free (for Friday only or for any length of time that includes Friday, July 29th) and located on a web site somewhere my readers can click through to and see a preview and/or download the complete file.

Your "book" must be a completed work (no WIPs or partials please) and you must be the copyright owner to submit it. Any genre--including short stories, collections or anthologies and/or poetry--is okay to submit, though I am particularly partial to romance genre and science fiction/fantasy (SF/F) titles since I write Romantic Suspense and SF technothrillers.

To participate, just post a comment below and provide me with your:
  1. book's title and your author/pen name
  2. book's genre and approximate word count
  3. a URL to the book's page (please test it to be sure it works!)
Or if your book's on Smashwords, just give me the URL and that will allow me to go get all of the data all by myself (as well as the book's  thumbnail image and a description), but you can provide any book page on any web site that sells your book so long as the sales page is "ready for prime time" viewing.

If you'd like to make a clickable link (please do!) just go ahead and type out the HTML for a link in your comment. (Click here for the W3C's read on how to create a link in HTML). Blogger will convert your HTML to a clickable link after your comment is posted. You'll need to fill in the CAPTCHA words even just to see the preview.

Please only use one link per comment or you'll trigger the SPAM filter but you can post multiple comments if you want to submit multiple books. Thanks for participating! You get free advertising; I get free content. It's a win/win.

Thanks, Saurabh! Will include you either way but you have a little self-contradiction going on here.

Your book's description sounds like non-fiction (as in the Psychology>>Depression you specified) but you put it into the category of fiction (literature>>literary). Which is it? Fiction or non-fiction? Sounds like the latter to me but I don't want to change your classification to something incorrect.
